2014 Jeep Wrangler Overview

Bob Long
Automotive Editor - March 10, 2014

The Wrangler's rugged looks and rough-and-tumble performance have enduring appeal for Jeep customers. It doesn't matter that it's impractical as a daily driver or less than ideal for highway journeys, the go-anywhere freedom of Wrangler ownership holds tremendous value for the faithful.

What's New for 2014

A trail kit with rings, a tow strap, gloves and a bag for storage, clear park lamps and turn signal indicators have been added to the ’14 model. Sport models now offer Uconnect, a 6.5-inch touchscreen radio with hard drive storage, SiriusXM Radio and 17-inch Rubicon aluminum wheels. Two special edition models are also offered: Rubicon X and Freedom.

Choosing Your Jeep Wrangler

The Wrangler is powered by a 285-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 powers the Wrangler, which earns 17 mpg in city driving conditions and 21 mpg on the highway. Two transmissions are offered: a six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic.

Buyers choose from three distinct trim levels:

Don't expect lavish equipment levels on the base Sport. Six speakers, cloth seats and trail-rated capability are standard.

The most luxurious of the Wranglers, a Sahara includes upgrades to side steps, a premium soft top with sunroof, 18-inch cast-aluminum wheels, air conditioning, power locks and windows, Alpine speakers, remote keyless entry, SiriusXM satellite radio, and heated side mirrors. Navigation, leather seats, and Uconnect phone are optional.

Think of the Rubicon as a trail-ready Wrangler that can be driven straight off a dealer lot. Standard features include a sway bar disconnect system, a remote-locking 4.10 axle ratio, and 17-inch aluminum wheels. Upgrades to the Rubicon X offer power dome hood, red tow hooks, decals, leather seating and silver accents.

CarsDirect Tip

In most cases, a Wrangler purchase is more emotional than logical. For everyday life, we'd recommend a Sahara. But if your weekends include rock-crawling and other off-road adventures, head straight for a Rubicon.
